“Beautiful Hotel with Even Better Staff”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

My girlfriend and I stayed at the RiverPlace for four days during the New Years holiday which is also her birthday. We were extremely impressed with the hotel and especially the hotel staff. Everyone was beyond nice, and genuinely so. You never got the feeling they were just doing their job.

The room was clean and had all the amenities we could have wanted. On top of that it was very well priced. Being a Kimpton member certainly helps and they like to give you special little surprises when you join.

I really don't have anything bad to say about the place. The Three Degrees restaurant in the hotel is also quite good and affordable. You'd be crazy not to stay here if you are going to Portland.

This is our favorite hotel. Staff is fabulous and work hard to make sure your stay is perfect. The restaurant is wonderful, excellent menu and of course the great service tops it off. The evening hosted wine service is something to look forward to, local beer and hot toddies are also offered (great for cold evenings)! Rooms are beautiful, clean, and very comfortable, and the location is picturesque....right on the Willamette River. Love this hotel!

Room Tip: I've stayed here three times and have always had a beautiful room.

Wow those hot toddies are a hit! The bourbon is infused for several weeks by our talented bartenders at 3 Degrees. They do make for an amazing cocktail. Thanks for your very nice comments.

My husband and I spent one night at this hotel and wished we could have stayed longer. The staff was AMAZING and our room was nice and clean. We LOVED the comfy bed and the pillows were awesome - we didn't want to get out of bed. The location can't be beat! We ate breakfast at the onsite restaurant and enjoyed the fried egg sandwich. You won't be disappointed with your stay here

We decided that this would be our joint Christmas present to each other, a fireplace suite at the RiverPlace hotel. Well the suite was indeed suite and the fire was superb, real wood logs and a lighter brick were provided on demand and it really added to the atmosphere. The hotel itself is due for refurb by Kimpton in Feb/Mar 2013 but that doesn't mean its tired and old by any means. Our room was excellent and the general decor is nice and relaxed.

The Kimpton touches of morning coffee and evening drinks were there, including a local 'hot cider with bourbon' which was rather excellent. The staff were quite brilliant with the manager on hand to serve the drinks. After 3 great nights we regrettably left feeling quite wonderful after an excellent romantic break.

If there was one thing the refurb could improve its the bathroom where the tap is at the end of the bath, shifting it to the side would make the bath more couple friendly.

Room Tip: Ask for a river view, and I can recommend room 425

What a nice gift to give one another! The fireplace suite is truly special. I cannot think of many if any hotels in the downtown Portland area that offer real wood burning fireplaces. It really sets the mood. Thanks for the review and please be sure to check out our new digs this coming spring.

Great boutique property in downtown Portland. Professional and friendly staff. Fantastic location. We stayed there so the kids could watch the Christmas Fleet on the river and the staff had hot chocolate waiting for us!

We are fortunate to work for a company who celebrates it's employees and treats us to a nice night on the town. This year RiverPlace was the choice and it was a great one! Very comfortable and clean rooms with nice views and the restaurandt has excellent food. The staff that looked after our party was very attentive and did an excellent job! We would highly recommend this hotel to everyone!

Room Tip: Choose a room with a river view, it's worth it!

What a wonderful night in Portland. I stayed at the Riverplace Hotel on the waterfront. We stayed in the one bedroom suite. It was located in the apartments that are adjacent to the hotel. It was great! The room was big, a full kitchen, a Woodburn fireplace (a real one) a separate bedroom. The bathroom had a washer and dryer. It would be a great place to stay for a few days. There was a balcony, it looked right out over the boardwalk with a view of the Willamette River and the marina. We picked a lucky night; the Christmas Boats were out on the water.
With a full kitchen, I was able to make our Dinner in the room and enjoy the beautiful view. The fireplace was also special.
The bedroom, had a built in, for lots of clothes. There was a queen sofa bed. Also a twin rollaway in the closet.
The service was great! There was a lovely welcome card, with a complementary festive cookie and a bottle of wine. I am a Kimpton member, so Wi-Fi was free; I also received a $10 mini bar credit.
Kimptons, are wonderful. The common area’s and evening wine bar is a nice touch.
I will go back.

Room Tip: Room 517 (not located inside the hotel)

Those condo suites sure can be special over the holidays. Glad you had the opportunity to check out the yearly tradition of the Christmas ships. My daughter and I got to see them for the first time this year and it was a lot of fun! Hope to see you again soon.
